    Throughout this paper, we will seek to find and discuss which ideas of family and whiteness, that are represented in Danish narratives about transnational adoption, by looking at two specific cases: the book Kære Zoe Ukhona by Pelle Hvenegaard and the documentary Mercy mercy – Adoptionens pris by Kathrine W. Kjær. Firstly, we will describe the historical process of transnational adoption, and critical adoption studies which this paper is inspired by. The theoretical framework of this paper is a combination of the two theorists Sarah Ahmed and Gloria Wekker. The focus will be on Ahmed’s concepts of affect and affective economies, and Wekker’s concept of white innocence. Secondly, through an analysis of our two cases, we will discuss and challenge how transnational adoptions are maintained through Western ideals of family, and how emotions are exchanged, negotiated, and demanded in the pursuit of the family ideal. Moreover, we will examine how the adopters’ see themselves as unproblematic and innocent, which helps to present adoption as an unproblematic way of creating a family. Finally, we are going to discuss the adoptees' role in transnational adoption, and the issues they may experience being adopted transnationally. In addition, we will discuss the reason why transnational adoption is maintained as unproblematic, despite the massive critique it has faced. In conclusion, we can surmise that a number of different elements maintain transnational adoption as an institution, including notions about the idealization of family, power relations between the global north and the global south, and economic and affective interests which are embedded in transnational adoption.

    The aim of this study is to examine which factors have affected the creation of a European identity amongst young people living in the European Union, and in which ways the European Union works to strengthen it. In this paper European identity has been defined as containing two categories, respectively a cultural identity and an institutionalized identity. This was done by using the theories of Anthony D. Smith on European identity, Neal G. Jesse and Kristen P. Williams on institutionalized identity and David Easton’s theory on legitimacy. The concept was elucidated through a review of the current literature on the subject. Using quantitative methods, specifically a multivariable logistic regression analysis on survey data from the Eurobarometer, factors affecting young people’s European identity was identified to be trust in European institutions and shared values. Furthermore, this paper found that The European Union tries to strengthen the collective sense of European identity in young people through promoting mobility and inclusion in decision-making.

    In this problem-oriented project we seek to analyze Chinese foreign policy regarding the South China Sea. This is based on an interest in the ongoing territorial dispute, which marks the potential for major regional conflict. This conflict has been studied by various authors from various perspectives, which have been synthesized and presented through a state-of-the-art review. Using the Copenhagen School of Securitization Theory combined with Hurd’s Legitimization Theory to set a theoretical foundation, we delve into the discursive landscape of Chinese foreign policy. The project seeks to analyze how the securitization efforts of the People’s Republic of China and its legitimacy as an international actor are intertwined. We conclude thus: The People’s Republic of China actively seeks to securitize their assertive policy by utilizing the legitimate discourse. This effort has not convinced their targeted audience because of the disingenuous nature of their political identity stemming from a political ambiguity combining assertiveness and cooperation.

    The following project is embedded in the subject of Cultural Encounters and investigates what meanings are applied to ‘dual citizenship’. The aim of the project is to change the focus on dual citizenship from migration or institutional aspects to the ascribed meaning of people who live in Denmark and feel Danish but simultaneously desire to obtain citizenship in another country. In the project, we also wish to reflect on the idea that it is only possible to feel a belonging to and to be recognized as a citizen in one nation. The empirical material constitutes both quantitative and qualitative research data. The data has been retrieved from an online survey answered by 284 respondents and from four interviews. The paper opens with an identification of the problem of interest and with an introduction to the methodological considerations related to the project that use mixed methods and an abductive means of scientific strategy.To support the research-question, the project draws on the theoretical knowledge of citizenship using legal, political and identity manifestations. The theoretical knowledge is based on the theories of imagined communities by Benedict Anderson, identity and categorization by Richard Jenkins, racialization of Muslims by Amani Hassani, and belonging by Margit Fauser, Eveline Resienauer and Thomas Faist.The analysis finds that sense of belonging is a crucial aspect for having or wanting to obtain dual citizenship. Citizenship becomes a marker of identity that a person can use in social life to either abstain from ideas connected to the other nation or to have the power to show belonging to another nation. This is shown in both the external and internal categorizations that are in the center of the problem of dual citizenship. The analysis is then used in a discussion of the duality between a formal citizenship and a cultural citizenship, as well as an assessment of the validity of the projects analysis and use of mixed methods.The project concludes that a more pronounced sense of belonging is apparent for those who have obtained formal dual citizenship compared to those who have not. Furthermore, we found that while practical factors are important to the concept of dual citizenship, emotional factors appear to be more significant. We believe this is especially visible in ideas concerning a sense of belonging, such as language abilities, kinship and name, external and internal categorization and expected obligations towards the other nation. Dual citizenship can therefore be argued to be used as a legitimization of a sense of belonging.

    This paper, seeks to examine the correlation between stock price and public sentiment expressed through social media. Through twitter scraping and pre- processing, sentiment can be extracted from text. The paper will be based on a heuristic approach to natural language processing. Furthermore, the paper will rely on the most common forms of sentiment analysis, using a rule-based and a machine-learning approach as a starting point and weigh these up against each other. Finally, we will continue with the best performing method, and weigh this up against real market data in a pursuit to find a correlation, should one exist. The paper found a sentiment-to-market accuracy 75%. And the accuracy score utilizing the rules-based approach of 72,72%.

    Creating Android apps has become increasingly important as more people get accessto mobile phones. These apps can be written in many languages, one being Python,although it is not considered a native language. We have tested the experienceof using Python for app development for the perspective of a beginner by using amodule called Kivy and creating an example app which can be found on our Github:https://github.com/KataRiegels/Expired. First we set out a list of requirementswhich cover a variety of features to be included in this example app. After that wediscuss how these requirements were implemented and the limitations that came upalong the way as well as whether multiple solutions were possible. We have thengeneralized these advantages and limitations for how they would effect general appdevelopment and provided some possible use cases where Kivy would be a goodoption for a beginner. Finally we reach the conclusion that there are both advantagessuch as Kivy language, KivyMD widgets and premade Pyjnius modules as well aslimitations being KivyMD’s inflexibility, outdated modules and complexity in recipesand the Pyjnius module.
